A new personal experience - The Unemployment Queue.

April 17, 2020





Two days ago I had joined the Unemployment Queue. I had been putting it off trying to navigate the quagmire online with no success. 

After a long wait, people begin to talk to one another. I had a nice chat with a woman behind me and occasionally the line would cheer when one person would get to go in the office. It was a long wait but ended up not as long as we all thought when the queue didn't move for half an hour (75 mins in the end).

Of course, there was the inevitable queue jumper. This woman tried it on and couldn't believe that I would not let her in. She was entitled and selfish. Unbelievable. 

That night I wrote the poem below. 



A Burgeoning Bonfire
Friendly Fire

Alone in the queue
There’s them
And then there’s you
Everyone is a potential enemy
Easily disarmed
By an amusing sentence
And speared through
By a kind word.

How swiftly
They can belong to you
And you to them
With an eye to

Misery may love company
But sure as hell can’t keep it
Nothing feeds the fire
More than the warmth
Of freshly made

Revolution through Re-creation

(below is the post I planned for this week before my experience above, written in 2018)








Snared Status




A singular viewpoint


Will see me unstuck


Judged, condemned n' quartered.




As it would anyone


Outside the current (2018) vocal


Anti-white straight male brigade.


How narrow their focus


How overblown their protests.




It’s not new


And long been amusing to me


Except meeting very


Young People


Who have swallowed the hook with the best


Oblivious to the pain


And status of the snared.




I would have been a potential stat too


Had I been of a certain age




Is for the experienced


And Rebellion is for Youth.




Sell an idea as an injustice


And you create revolution


How easy to manipulate.
